Holiday Wish List

It’s only a whole three months away now, which is going to FLASH BEFORE MY EYES! Legit it probably will flash before my eyes… πŸ˜› I’m trying to keep myself on a spending ban until the holiday is over due to wanting to save money FOR the holiday. However I do want to pick up some new bits and pieces to take with me. You know the usual holiday stuff… Bikini, shorts, skirts, sandals… Etc etc etc!

I’m not going to lie, I was super excited to write this post for weeks after eyeing up LOADS of bikinis, but now the sales have hit so many of them have gone and I am GUTTED. This list isn’t going to be as big as I originally planned it to be… But oh well! πŸ˜› I tried really hard to be honest to get a decent list together! Just goes to show I didn’t need as much as I thought I did. πŸ˜›

  • New Look Pool To Party Turquoise Sequin Wrap Front Bikini Top – Β£14.99 (link)
  • New Look Pool To Party Turquoise Sequin Tie Side Bikini Bottoms – Β£9.99 (link)

I Β have had my eye on quite a few bikini sets from New Look so far this year, as I mentioned in my May wish list (which you can read here). That has sadly sold out online now due to it going in the sale, so it’s one I’ll have to keep my eye out for in stores. ANYWAY This bikini set is better in my opinion though to be honest as not only can you wear it by the pool but teamed up with a pair of shorts you could wear it out and about. I wouldn’t do this myself as I feel conscious about my stomach. BUT it just looks so pretty! I definitely want to get it for my holiday. It just looks so pretty for a summer holiday and has a mermaid look to it. As well as that I love the fastening across the back as it means you don’t have to piss around with tying two straps, just the one around the neck. I’ll definitely try and get this one instead of leaving it too late like the other. πŸ˜›

  • Vans X Peanuts Skates Crewneck Sweatshirt – Β£55.00 (link)

This is definitely one of my favourite items on this list. I was actually going to add it to my July wish list but NAHHHHH I want it for holiday and to be honest it’s definitely an excuse to get it before I go, or at least try and find it for sale whilst I’m over in Fuerteventura. It’s a sweatshirt with loads of cute pictures of Snoopy on, as well as Woodstock. I’d rock this with jeans and shorts and probably wear it to death throughout the autumn and winter season. πŸ˜›

  • Iron Fist Deerly Dress – Β£45.00 (currently in sale for Β£26.99) – (link)

This is a dress I had my eye out for buying and wearing to a wedding, but I wasn’t able to go to that so I never ended up buying it. I love Iron Fist dresses, they’re amazing quality for the price and really comfortable to wear. I’ve taken and worn an Iron Fist dress on holiday before and it was perfect for evening wear as well as day wear due to the gorgeous red colour. As the name suggests it does have a deer theme to it, which is the print. There is the white spots you would find on a deer, as well as some little white skulls which I love, it really gives that Iron Fist feel to it.

  • Vans X Peanuts Slide-On Sandals – Β£25.00 (link)

I have a love and hate relationship with sliders right now. They look awesome, especially these and even some holographic ones I’ve eyed up online. BUT SERIOUSLY what the fuck are these ugly fluffy sliders everyone is wearing right now? Can we burn them? πŸ˜› But I have seen a few pairs I like the look for but the most tasteful ones I’ve found to date are these Vans X Peanuts collaboration ones! They’re black (tick!), they have Snoopy and Woodstock on (tick, tick!) and they’re Vans (TICK, TICK, TIIIICK!)! What more could I ask for? πŸ˜› I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for them to go into the sale. πŸ˜‰

  • New Look Pool To Party Turquoise Sequin Swimsuit – Β£29.99 (link)

I am not a fan of wearing swimming costumes/swimsuits as I love tanning and wearing a swimsuit won’t help you tan! Well your legs and arms yeah, but sweet FA else. This however is something I would like to wear in the daytime and evening with a skirt or a pair of shorts to make an outfit. I wouldn’t want to pay the full price for it mind as I find it’s a bit expensive for what it is! It does look gorgeous though and honestly it just looks like a great piece of evening wear.

  • Killstar Dye Fast Woodstock Maxi Dress TIEDYE – Β£44.99Β (currently in sale for Β£29.99) – (link)

I’ve had my eye on picking up another Killstar dress for ages but always left it due to saving money. I definitely want to get another one for the holiday and I’ve had my eye on the rainbow tie dye for ages! There’s two styles for this print, the maxi dress and the sun dress (which you can find here). I like both dresses for various reasons but I seem to be swaying towards the maxi dress more for various reasons. This would be lovely to wear more so in the evening when the sun is down than in the day. This is mostly due to the pentagram print on the back, I wouldn’t want that tanned into my back. πŸ˜›

  • Vans X Peanuts Riffs Dress – Β£60.00 – (link)

This is the last item on this list and one I’m 50/50 about, mainly due to the price! I’ve wanted a denim dress for at least two years now but I can’t seem to find a decent one anywhere. They’re either too thin, too thick or don’t suit my shape. Of course this one may happen to have the same issues I’ve encountered before, but I just love how this has pictures of Snoopy all over. It’s just so different and something I wouldn’t mind grabbing for the holiday. It’s just so expensive sadly. 😦 Sooo we shall see!

That’s my holiday wish list! I know it’s nothing special, but I’m quite laid back with holidays, especially to Fuerteventura. πŸ™‚

The Self Love Tag

I’m sorry my blog has been lacking of a blog post since my haul, but sadly due to being a mixture of busy and Dane taking too long to do his part on a blog post I wanted to get something out there before the end of the week!

We’ve been really busy sadly due to both being off work to chill out together and do work on the house. We have done zero relaxing and chilling and more WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK… πŸ˜›

Finally it’s Saturday night, I have some vlogs playing and I’m going to take part in the self love tag, which I found over on Sally’s blog Little Budget’s, which I’ll leave a link to here.

Here are the rules:

Answer all the questions honestly!

Tag 5 people you’d like to do this tag! I’m just going to put it out there, if you read this post you must take part in this tag! πŸ˜›

Anyway, on with the questions! πŸ˜€

1. What is something that’s getting you down at the moment?

Without going into too much detail about it, my job. It’s not what I want to do in life right now and without sounding like a dick, I am so much better than that. I have an MA for fuck sake and it certainly isn’t in the job I’m currently doing. Alongside that money, which again is down to my job.

2. What is something that makes you happy?

Spending time with my boyfriend and friends and writing for my blog. I know that’s probably classed as two things, but they’re both things that cheer me up no matter what.

3. Name 3 guilty pleasures.

Eating anything savoury, scouting eBay for geeky goodies and picking the ingrown hairs out of Dane’s face. πŸ˜›

4. What is something about yourself you want to improve?

I’d like to try and get back into shape again. I was toned as fuck when I first started my job and I looked hella good because of it! Now, whilst I have lost a bit of weight I want to be toned. I miss my minor two pack abs and hench as fuck arms. 😦

5. When was the last time you belly laughed?

Wednesday night/Thursday morning over at a friends house. We were playing games and we just hollered with laughter. It was amazing.

6. What is your biggest insecurity/fear?

I guess failing. I don’t want to end up looking back on my life and thinking, “Fuck Nat what did you do wrong?” I want to have a great job that not only pays my bills but enables me to do things I REALLY want to do. Examples being going to Japan, buying things I really want, paying off our mortgage, etc. As well as that I really do want to start my own family, but right now I’m such a mess that I just can’t and that fucking sucks. I just want to do well in life. 😦

7. Name a song that always cheers you up when you’re down.

Erm… I’m not sure to be honest I have so many! xD Right now the main song from Persona 5 makes me happy.

8. Name 3 things you like about yourself.

My eyebrows as they’re naturally amazing. My hair because it’s lovely, long and wavy. Finally… Probably (I know it’s two) but my boobs and bum. Over the years they’ve just got better and it’s nice to finally have a chest! That and Dane loves my bum, which is something I’ve always hated as I thought it was too big. It’s from him loving it that has helped me love it too. :’)

9. What is an achievement that’s made you proud of yourself this year?

I can’t say as I have one to be honest… I know that sounds dumb but I really can’t think of anything. So far this year it’s been a mix of massive emotions. If anything I know a few are proud of me for reaching out for help about my mental health, but I just feel like that isn’t enough to make myself proud sadly. So right now nothing has made me proud yet… Sadly.

10. Tell us your happiest memory.

Ever? Erm… Quite possibly when me and Dane went to Fuerteventura for the first time and went out together for little adventures in the day. Due to this it makes me really excited for September when we go again!

So those are my answers for the self love tag! Will you be giving it a go? If so make sure to comment on here and link me to your posts! πŸ˜€

Until next time all take care and I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend so far.

A Geeky Collective Haul

I can’t actually remember the last time I wrote a haul post on my blog… A part of me feels like it was May 2016 when I was brought back some stuff from Fuerteventura… *goes to do some research* Okay I tell a lie! The last haul I did was back in October 2016 when I did a haul of what goodies me and Dane picked up from Birmingham’s anime and gaming con (I’ll pop a link here if you want to read that!).

 photo Photo 12-06-2017 11 43 03 pm_zpsdrrmcgid.jpg

BUT the time has come for yet another haul and a collective one at that! I’ve got stuff in this haul that I’ve picked up for about a month and everything in it is geeky! πŸ˜› I was originally just going to call it a Pokemon haul considering most of the stuff is Pokemon related. But meh I don’t wanna do thaaaaaat! πŸ˜›

  • Loungefly x Pokemon Tattoo Flash Print Duffle Bag.

This is definitely one of my favourite buys of 2017 so far and it’s a bag I have wanted for quite some time now! Everyone I know knows how much I love Pokemon so to be able to own a grown up handbag makes me happy. That and I also love the products that Loungefly come out with. I own a couple of their items and they’re all amazing. I didn’t buy this brand new from the website however, I’d need to take out a loan. πŸ˜› I got this second hand from an eBay seller in the UK and it’s in great condition for how much I paid for it. It’s pretty much my anniversary present from Dane. I bought my bag and he bought himself something for the computer. So an all around win win situation! πŸ˜› FYI I will be doing a post about this bag properly VERY soon! I’m too excited not to show it off on my blog. πŸ˜›

  • Nendoroid Gumi.

FYI I was too excited about displaying her to wait a week to take pictures for this post, so I do apologise for all sorts of pictures… πŸ˜› This was another eBay purchase and one I am so damn happy with! I have wanted the Gumi Nendoroid for as long as I can remember, but the problem was being able to find her at a decent price! Due to her being a Vocaloid and her being made and released back in 2013 it makes her rare I suppose and she can be pricey to pick up. Someone had her up on eBay for bidding and I JUST won the bid! She’s second hand but I don’t care. She’s been very much looked after and loved so that doesn’t bother me too much! She’s going to go on display next to Deadpool in our Nendoroid cupboard.

  • Pokemon Center Eevee Collection Poke Dolls Vaporeon and Sylveon Pin Badges.

This was a random purchase and one I am SO glad I made now! YY Kawaii was advertising that she had some of the Eevee pin badges for sale and at the time I thought this was the only bit of merch I was going to snag from this amazing collection. Honestly this is the second Eeveelution collection I have bought from now and it is just as good as the last one. ANYWAY! I couldn’t decide on one Eeveelution so I picked two of my favourites, Vaporeon and Sylveon. In my opinion Sylveon looks the cutest out of all 9 for the pin badges! I have contemplated popping these on my Pokemon bag… But we shall see! πŸ˜› I’m not 100% sure if YY Kawaii has anymore of these left to sell, I ordered mine with her over a month ago now sadly. You can always drop her a message and I’m sure she’ll be more than happy to help! If anything I regret not buying all of the Eeveelutions to be honest… But we can still try. πŸ˜›

  • Pokemon Center Eevee Collection Poke Dolls Flareon Plushie.

This is definitely something I am SO HAPPY TO HAVE! If there was one thing I really wanted from this collection it was a plushie as they’re all so cute. I knew I couldn’t have all of them and my only option was going to be to pick up one. I then had the hard choice of picking just one, JUST ONE! Do you know how hard that can be? Well I ended up picking Flareon as I found it was the cutest one out of the bunch. Then after settling on one I wanted it was time to find someone who was willing to sell it at a decent price. Again YY Kawaii came to my rescue and sold this little cutie to me at a great price! It’s so fluffy and now lives with the rest of my Eeveelution plushies in the living room, it makes Β me so happy. A part of me doesn’t want to keep this in the cupboard with all the others, but on the fireplace next to my Vaporeon and Flareon picture and figures… I want it to be safe away from direct sunlight though… 😦

  • Tamagotchi 4U.

This is something I’ve wanted for a while after watching a couple of YouTubers I follow talk about them. These are only made in Japan and therefore are only available from there. I got this from a seller in the UK so it’s secondhand. I think it’s only had one or two owners which isn’t a bad thing! It wasn’t exactly cheap for what it is but it cost me less to actually buy this than our up to date Tamagotchi here in the UK! It’s a colour screen and sadly is ALL in Japanese. With a bit of Googling I’ve managed to work out what stuff means on here. The only problem I’m having with it so far is trying to work out how to keep my Tamagotchi alive whilst I’m at work… But that’s what the babysitter is for. Yeah there’s a babysitter in the game. πŸ˜› Sadly when it came to taking pictures of my Tamagotchi it was telling me how the batteries were dead. Fuck sake. πŸ˜› SO I attached a picture I took the day after I got it. πŸ™‚

  • Primark Pokemon Pyjamas.

I wanted to get myself some new pyjamas due to the weather getting warmer and I thought why not get some Pokemon ones! I had to pick these up from eBay as 1. I don’t really get near a Primark store these days due to how busy I am and 2. They probably don’t stock these anymore. I didn’t pay much for them and let me tell you, they are hella comfortable! After getting the ones from eBay I ended up buying more when visiting an actual Primark store recently. I ended up buying a Pokemon pyjama top as well as some Pikachu shorts. The first set is from eBay and the second is from where I went into an actual Primark store instead of paying extra and being a busy/lazy bitch. πŸ˜› I decided to go a size up when buying all of these and whilst I don’t consider myself to be a skinny moo, these are HUGE on me, especially the second set I bought. This isn’t a bad thing as it means that I’ll be comfortable, but i’m just saying it as it’s something to be wary of. I also picked up some Pikachu boyfriend boxers too but I don’t need to show them off.

So those are all the geeky goodies I picked up over the past month. I have bought a lot and thus spent a lot of money… *smacks hand* NAUGHTY NAT! YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE SAVING MONEY! No in all honesty though, a lot of this stuff to me felt like things that if I left them I probably wouldn’t get them again for a while, or at the price I paid. Examples of that being the Loungefly x Pokemon bag, the Tamagotchi (which I have discovered eat batteries like a motherfucker!), Gumi Nendoroid figure and possibly the Pokemon Center goodies too… So practically most of the shit on this haul. xD

For the rest of this month and well, until the holiday in September I’m going to be as good as I can with my cash! It’s now time to stop being daft and spending my money willy nilly and save it towards the holiday, as well as things for the house! Yesterday I bought some flowers for the garden, which is really exciting! I can’t wait for our house to be 100% done so that I can show off my favourite parts of it to you guys!

SO what items have you accumulated recently? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below.

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely week so far!

17 Things I Want To Tell My 17 Year Old Self

I feel so fucking old. 10 years ago I was 17. This time last year I was in my first year of college, approaching the summer holidays and getting ready to go into my second year. Life was great but around July/August time shit hit the fan and the end of 2007 was crazy.

This was the year that I changed and it was a mixture of for the good and not so much for the good. I’ve wanted to write this post for a while now but meh I always write notes on it and lose them. I’m just going to write it straight onto here now, then I can’t make up excuses that I’ve lost the notes. πŸ˜›

Warning, there might be some upsetting topics mentioned at times in this post, but nothing TOO serious. πŸ™‚

  1. Your college friends suck. We know this and you deserve so much more. But you’ll meet one of your best friends this year so don’t panic! You’ll make more friends and ones who treat you with respect.
  2. College sucks, honestly it does. University will be amazing and you’ll have the time of your life!
  3. Your mental health is bad right now, but it’ll be okay. You’ll get some help and from it you’ll grow stronger as a person. You have yourself to thank later as well as some old friends from the website we do not speak of.
  4. Your style isn’t exactly amazing, but fuck it! It’s your style and if you like what you wear then sod it! Those white high tops you love to rock? You keep fucking rocking them. You’ll still own a pair 10 years later. You’ll also still wear all your geeky slogan tees and black skinny fit jeans.
  5. Oh by the way, you still own your black and red checkered Vans… Your 27 year old self is a fucking legend.
  6. Be prepared. Later on this year you’ll lose your virginity… But sadly it comes at a cost. You’ll lose it to someone horrible.
  7. In turn you’ll have a month of emotional abuse, as well as other things. You’ll get through it and luckily it won’t mess you up sexually. If anything you’ll just see it as a bad experience and explore your sexuality more over the next 10 years.
  8. Yes, you hate that your eyebrows are thick, black and are constantly commented on. BUT don’t touch them brows girl. Mom is right! Someone called Cara Delevingne will emerge eventually and big dark brows will be in. They’re in 10 years later and people pay big money to get them tattooed on and for eyebrow pencils, stencils, etc etc. Keep rocking what you were born with. People will be jealous.
  9. In 10 years you’ll meet one of your childhood heroes, Jesse Margera. You’ll shake and be nervous as hell but love it all the same! What? You don’t believe me? Fuck you then. Wait and see! πŸ˜›
  10. One of the girls you occasionally talk to on the website we do not speak of will become your best friend.
  11. One of the locations you film a project for for college will be the place you eventually move and buy your first home at.
  12. You do some pretty bad things later on in the year. You drink a lot and take drugs. This is just a phase and it passes eventually. Thankfully quickly enough that it doesn’t become something worse or a habit.
  13. You have a secret thing for Japanese things, including anime and manga. You don’t know anyone else who loves these things. Just be patient, those people will come along soon.
  14. Don’t think about dying sweetheart. I know it hard and it’s something you’ll continue to do for a long time, but try not to. Things seem worse than they actually are, but you’ll get through it all.
  15. You’ll get into your first relationship this year! YAY! It’s good but sadly it isn’t forever. You’ll understand why, but just remember. Let go of the things you love if they don’t make you happy.
  16. Thanks to studying media you’ll learn that you love to write. Don’t let go of that hobby! It’ll get you places.
  17. Finally don’t think that you’ll Β be alone forever, because you won’t. A couple of guys will turn you down telling you you’re ugly, fat, a loser. You’re none of those things! Sadly due to those things you end up with low self esteem, anxiety and possibly a minor eating disorder. Fuck those guys because you were too damn good for them all anyway. I know it hurts when you look up into the sky and wonder, “Where is he? I just want someone to love me for who I am.” He’s waiting out there for you and he’s thinking the exact same thing as you are. He’s not even the person you meet later on this year. You won’t meet him until you’re 23. But he’ll be worth the wait, trust me.

So that was the 17 things I would say to my 17 year old self.

The main thing I remember from 2007 was just what a crazy year it was. I discovered a lot about myself and I grew up quite a lot. It was also one of the worst years of my life and I’m so glad I managed to get through it. I knew some shitty people from my college course and after I fell out with them I befriended a group of people in college who were just as bad as the classmates, if not worse. They were scummy and the kind of bunch you would find on a Jeremy Kyle episode. I took the whole thing as a massive lesson.

Sadly due to what happened during my first year of college I developed depression and anxiety, as well as low self esteem due to how people picked on me for how I looked. I wasn’t a pretty teenager. I had loads of spots, thick eyebrows and I dressed like a boy. That was just who I was! I hadn’t yet really discovered who I was and I was stuck in a sort of limbo. I only really discovered who I was in my final year of university, if not after when I finished!

Sometimes we forget how hard it is being a teenager and I can only imagine now with social media being bigger and available to us 24/7 and from a few clicks on our mobile phones I can’t even begin to imagine what it must be like for teenagers today.

I honestly wish I could go back in time and speak to my teenage self. She always felt so alone and different. She thought the people who DID understand her were her friends, when in reality they were just using her for their own entertainment. One word, cunts.

That being said I think I grew stronger as a person, as well as very bitter towards people. I take people with a pinch of salt now until I get to know them better to judge whether I trust them or not. At the same time if people piss me off I usually tell them how it is and where to go. That’s just what I’ve learnt is best to do from years of taking shit from people and trying to be nice. πŸ˜›

OKAY RANT OVER!

P.S. Those are the only two decent pictures of 17 year old me I could find. πŸ˜›

What would you tell yourself 10 years ago? Please let me know in the comments!

Until next time take care all and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

The Blogger Tag

SOOOOOO sorry that I’m a day late for a blog post, but I got busy with life… And sleeping.

To explain why I never got a blog post written yesterday short and sweet, I was up for work at 4.30am, YES IN THE AM! Got back from work at 1.30pm, stressed out about my PS4 not working and thus had to wait for Dane to come home from work about 4pm to fix said issue. He fixed it around 4.30pm and I was fast asleep. Woke up at 8pm, watching him play some games, watched Soviet Womble videos on YouTube (which in turn is an AMAZING YouTuber and you should check him out here) and fell to sleep about 10pm-11pm. Sleep was legit the reason for no blog post yesterday! πŸ˜‰

So when I was trying to come up with an idea of what to write today I stumbled across a saved post on my Bloglovin’ account that I’ve wanted to do for agggggges! It is as you can see, The Blogger Tag. I wasn’t tagged to take part in this sadly but I’m doing it anyway, because I am a blogger… And because I can πŸ˜›

This tag was found on Life For Me Lately which is run by the lovely Megan! I’ll leave a link to her post here so you can read her answers to the questions. πŸ™‚

Question 1 – How tall are you?

As far as I’m aware I am 5’6 or 5’7… πŸ˜› Not short, but not tall. πŸ˜›

Question 2 – Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?

Erm… *calls Dane and asks if I have a hidden talent* Apparently he doesn’t know either. πŸ˜› I don’t think I actually have any to be honest…

Question 3 – What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

Oh God all sorts! I hate when people follow you on both Twitter and Instagram, you follow them back because you’re a polite human being and THEY FUCKING UNFOLLOW YOU! Piss off people who do this because it is just do damn annoying! That and when you follow someone on Twitter you get that annoying automated message bullshit. Urgh go away. πŸ˜› OH and I also hate when people review make up and don’t at least swatch said items. I want to know what it looks like outside of the tube, thank you please.

Question 4 – What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?

People who feel the need to go around spreading other peoples business. That shit has nothing to do with you. Also people who can’t say simple things such as please, thank you and excuse me. Just piss off with your impoliteness. πŸ˜›

Question 5 – What’s your favourite song?

I can’t just pick ONE favourite… Well I could. The song I’ve added is one I fell in love with growing up and it definitely helped shape my love for French house/electronic music. OF COURSE I love my rock, metal etc too but I love this song so much. One of the guys behind making this song is Thomas Bangalter who is also half of Daft Punk… FYI he’s the dude who wears the silver helmet. πŸ˜‰

Question 6 – What’s your favourite social media website?

Definitely Instagram! πŸ˜€ I love it even more since creating an account to coincide with my blog. If you want to follow me by the way it’s @theremightbecoffeeblog.

Question 7 – What’s your favourite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?

Usually catching up on blog work, playing Persona 5 (I’m addicted to that game right now) and having some of my favourite songs on whilst I clean the bathroom. I like to dance whilst I clean by the way. πŸ˜›

Question 8 – What’s your favourite junk food?

There’s all sorts I love to binge on really… As long as it’s savoury then I’m happy! So usually pizza, crisps and cheese.

Question 9 – Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

I don’t have any pets sadly. 😦 I’d love a black miniature schnauzer though!

Question 10 – What are your number one favourite nonfiction/fiction books?

I’m always a sucker for Sophie Kinsella books, especially the Shopaholic series! Also love a bit of John Green too, my favourite being Looking for Alaska. OH and the Bridget Jones books are amazing.

Question 11 – What’s your favourite beauty product or tool?

Although I only have one I adore the Kat Von D liquid lipsticks and I REALLY want more. πŸ˜› I also love the colour changing lipsticks by Barry M too! I want to review them both very soon. Speaking of Barry M I always find their lip liners to be the best as well.

Question 12 – When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

I’m forever embarrassed! What do you expect from someone with anxiety? πŸ˜› Erm… Probably one of the last times I was was at work. A colleague made me jump, which in turn made me squeal quite loudly. I stood there for a while smiling and trying to pretend that what happened hadn’t. Oh dear. πŸ˜›

Question 13 – If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Probably Red Bull… I’ve noticed I’ve started to drink that loads lately. Either that or coffee, can’t live without my daily cup of coffee. ^_^

Question 14 – What’s your favourite movie?

Ooo this is a hard one! Either Spirited Away, The Green Mile or Forrest Gump.

Question 15 – What was your favourite lesson in school and why?

It was either drama or English, I couldn’t pick one or the other. I feel like I enjoyed English that little more as I found people thought drama was more of a class to piss around in than actually learn.

Question 16 – If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Either Fuerteventura or Tokyo.

Question 17 – PC or Mac?

Although I would sway more towards PC I would also love to have both (well we do seeing as I own a PC and Dane owns a Mac) because Mac’s are better for editing (both photo and video) software than PC’s in my opinion.

Question 18 – Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse? (or kind gesture from a friend)

Dane gave me a quick kiss earlier on this afternoon. Nothing soppy, but nice all the same. πŸ™‚

Question 19 – Favourite celebrity?

Erm… I don’t know to be honest… I love loads I can’t really pick one. Ryan Reynolds is probably my favourite to be honest but I love so many! Examples being Simon Pegg is definitely one, alongside Amy Lee, Dave Grohl, Johnny Knoxville, Joseph Gilgun, Iwan Rheon and more but I can’t think of them right now.

Question 20 – What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

There’s a couple but they’re more YouTube vloggers than bloggers. Inc Ninkcompoop, Lily Melrose and Miss Budget Beauty.

Question 21 – Who is your biggest inspiration?

I really don’t know to be honest… I’m supposed to say my parents and it’s not that they don’t inspire me but sadly my mental health is so bad right now that I don’t have any motivation to do a whole lot right now to even be inspired to do anything… If that makes sense? :’)

Question 22 – What is your favourite blog to read?

Definitely one of my fellow geeky bloggers! Either Raiin Monkey or The Mini Mermaid. I just find a lot of their posts that they write I’ll always find something I love, especially on their wish lists.

Question 23 – What is your favourite high street shop?

I don’t know really as I don’t buy clothes much anymore really… I find I sway from different stores and right now I’m loving the bikinis New Look are offering! I usually end up buying pieces from Topshop though. Either way I don’t have a favourite. If there’s a store I’m loving right now it’s Killstar!

Question 24 – Are you in education or do you work?

I’m working, full time sadly. πŸ˜›

Question 25 – One thing you are proud of?

I’m proud of owning my own home. It’s so fucking hard to do right now, but me and Dane have formed a great little team and we have our lovely home to leave and come home to everyday and that makes me happy. I’m also proud of what amazing best friends I have! Aside from the house I’m also really proud of my blog. I love it so damn much and I try to work on it as much as I physically can. It’s getting better as each month goes on and that itself makes me happy.

YES! That was The Blogger Tag! I tag everyone who reads this post to give it a go. Of course if you do I want you to leave your blog Β links in the comments or over on my Twitter @maybeecoffee so I can come and read your answers.

I hope you’re all doing well and having a great week so far. What a shame about the weather though huh?

Until next time take care all!

June Wish List ’17

It’s the sixth month of the year, which means we are officially halfway through 2017 AND it’s also the month of both mine and Dane’s four year anniversary as well as our first anniversary since we got the keys to the house. YAY!

It’s also another month where I need to watch my money and be good… Which I don’t think I’ve really done this month sadly. 😦 I’ve bought things here and there. URGH! If I buy anything next month though it’ll be something for Dane’s anniversary present. He wants a Fitbit but they’re so expensive! πŸ˜₯

Although I need to be good it won’t stop me wishing for things I can’t have! πŸ˜›

  • Smoko Elodie Unicorn Ramen Bowl – $29.99 (link)

I’ve always wanted a proper ramen bowl but I’ve never really found one I like the look of. I discovered this a couple of months ago when I saw that Smoko had a Kickstarter page going and I found they had created a ramen bowl to go alongside their Elodie mug, which I also want! I was going to back the Kickstarter they were doing but when I saw how much they were charging extra because of me being in the UK, I changed my mind. Very sad times. I’d still love this bowl though! It’ll be something I get when I have some spare cash. Import from the USA will be a fucking fortune.

  • Firebox My Neighbour Totoro Mug – Β£16.99 (link)

Okay so it’s not like I need anymore mugs… BUT who can resist this one? Honesty! I love Totoro just as much as most people in the world so this mug is right up my street. I love how he has a lid which obviously makes for his ears. I don’t know what I’d use a mug with a lid for. My mom does all the time… πŸ˜› I’d have this for hot chocolates to be honest in winter time. You could put marshmallows inside and pop the lid on to help them melt! YES THIS IS THE BEST IDEA EVER!

  • PS Vita Slim – Prices vary depending whether you buy new or second hand…

I REALLY want a PS Vita… Don’t ask me why I just do! I love my Nintendo 2DS loads and although I don’t play it as much as I used to I do love my handheld consoles and enjoy playing them. I guess I just want to add another to my collection. I also like a lot of the exclusive games on there and they’re super cheap now to buy on the official PS store so why not get one now? Sadly they’re only mostly available second hand and are Β£80-Β£150 depending which one you get. The slim is what I want and is sadly more expensive. Places like GAME and CEX sell them second hand so if me and Dane go through with our ideas for anniversary presents I may be getting this and he may be getting a Fitbit. πŸ˜›

  • Root Letter PS4 Game – Β£20.00 (link)

I don’t really need a new game for my PS4 anytime soon as I can see Persona 5 taking up much of my life until The Fractured But Whole comes out later this year. BUT I have looked into Root Letter and it looks pretty damn cool! It’s set in Japan for a start, which is a genre of games I appear to enjoy now. It’s a murder mystery style game which looks and sounds really interesting. For Β£20.00 if I really want to grab myself something else to play alongside Persona 5, at least I know it won’t break the bank!

  • Your Name Manga Vol. 1 – Β£9.99 (link)

I did a little digging last month about Your Name after I saw it in the cinema in April and I delightfully discovered that the film was being turned into a novel AND a manga! I knew I would want to pick up the manga, and guess what? IT’S OUT THIS MONTH! I’ll want to pre order it or at least order it the day it comes out… But money… I may order the novel though for when I go on holiday. I’d love to add it to my collection.

  • Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Manga Vol. 3 – Β£9.98 (link)

This is a manga I’ll definitely be pre ordering closer to the release date! I’ve been waiting patiently for it to come out for a couple of months now so it’s something I need to read! πŸ˜€ I love Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, especially the anime! I soon picked up the manga and although I don’t like it as much as the anime, it’s still great.

  • cKy The Phoenix Album – Β£6.99 (link)

Oh my I am sooooo excited for this album to come out this month! I’ll be downloading it as soon as possible to listen to in the car. I love cKy so much and they’re one of my favourite bands so it’s going to be like seeing an old friend hearing the new album. I already know however that it’s going to be completely different to the previous four albums and I’m unsure if I’m excited or nervous about this… We shall see…

  • Secret Key Pink Racoony Hydro-Gel Eye & Cheek Patch – Β£12.47 (link)

I’ve had my eye Β on these for a couple of months now as they look pretty amazing to be honest and I have heard some mixed reviews on them. They’re cute little pink patches that you apply to your under eyes and cheeks. I’d only use these on my eyes though to give me a cooling sensation, help my bags and wake me up a little. They sound like they’d last ages as well and at a decent price. PLUS the raccoon on the packaging is so damn cute! Which is something that first attracted me to the product… πŸ˜›

I feel like this months wish list is so boring… I also feel like there was so much more stuff that I actually wanted… Obviously not! I really need to watch my month this month as I was a little naughty in May… I’m meant to be saving up for the holiday in September as well as stuff for the garden. FUCK SAKE I HATE BEING AN ADULT!

What items are on your wish list for June? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely weekend so far.

May Favourites ’17

Well hello June! Both mine and Dane’s month of big things, including our 4 year anniversary and also our first year anniversary of buying our house.

May has been nothing but shit to be perfectly honest. The start of the month saw me really poorly and without going into detail work has been crap. This has sadly resulted in my mental health getting worse and me relapsing. I’ll have to go into more detail about this in another post though.

BUT June! I’m seeing it as a month for improvement! Getting myself a better job, saving up better for our holiday and getting myself better.

May was the month that I was able to start wearing my lipsticks again WHICH IS AMAZING NEWS! I’ve never been so happy as to wear my red MAC lipstick. πŸ˜›

Of course I have some other favourites so lets get to it!

  • Boots Extracts Marshmallow and Peppermint Body Scrub.

This is a body scrub I picked up in the sales in the marshmallow and peppermint gift set. I really wanted to get one of these so I was really pleased that I found one on New Years Eve on a trip to town with Dane! I’ve already used the shower gel and I use the hand cream at work, which is amazing. The body butter it equally as good. The body scrub isn’t the best in the world but it certainly does the job! I just wish it was rougher really as whilst I have sensitive skin I still like to feel that something it working and doing the job. Obviously this was limited edition for Christmas so it can’t be bought now (well, unless it’s on eBay) so yeah… πŸ˜›

  • Palmolive Gourmet Mint Shake Body Butter Shower Cream.

I LOVE these shower creams so damn much, I can’t even put into words! Every time me and Dane see these on offer whilst out doing our food shop we pick a couple up. Whilst the chocolate one is my favourite this is a new one me and Dane picked up to try and og my… It was gorgeous! πŸ˜€ Sadly I don’t have the bottle anymore as we used it all up. We’re currently using the vanilla one, which is equally amazing! These are really thick shower creams and a little really does go a long way! This always leaves my skin feel soft and smooth and smelling amazing. The chocolate one is definitely the best but it doesn’t hurt to try the others! If you haven’t tried these yet PLEASE get some and give it a go. I doubt you’ll regret it. πŸ˜›

  • Victoria’s Secret Victoria EDP.

Late last year I travelled down to Chichester for work and after I’d finished any shifts I’d done there I was able to go and do whatever I wanted for the rest of the day. Not going to lie, most of the time I ventured to the shops as I was so bored in the hotel room otherwise! I went into the town centre on my last day and ended up going in TK Maxx to do a bit of retail therapy. Among some Korean beauty items I picked up this perfume. Whenever I venture into Victoria’s Secret I Β have a smell of the perfumes in there to see what they’re like. They’re nothing special to be honest but they look great because of what they are. You know? This is a 50ml bottle and cost me about Β£25.99 from memory. It’s a great perfume but not as good as I remember… I use it for work really as a body spray more than anything. It’s like and not that heavy so it’s good if you work around food.

  • Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo Lipstick in shade Roman.

I’ve owned this for about a year now and I’ve probably only used it a Β handful of times. It’s a very creamy and glossy lipstick and due to that I find it’s a bit too sticky and heavy to use during work. This is however the first lipstick I wore since my lips being bad and I actually didn’t realise how easy and nice this lipstick is to wear. To get rid of that glossy feeling I blotted it a little and it lasted AGES! It’s also a really nice lipstick to wear during warm and muggy weather. It’s one I’ll be wearing more this year for sure. I miss wearing lipsticks instead of wearing liquid lipsticks all the time. This one is pretty moisturising too.

  • The Body Shop Peppermint Reviving PumiceΒ Foot Scrub.

I’ve loved this foot scrub for years and although I’ve had this new tub since January this year, I’ve hardly used it to be honest… I don’t know why… BUT I’ve recently started using it once a week to make sure my feet are lovely and soft! To date I haven’t found a foot scrub as good as this one. It doesn’t work miracles (for Β£7.50 you can’t expect that!) but it does help my feet be soft and smooth for a while! You can’t really go wrong and I recommend The Body Shop foot range to everyone. It’s definitely the best thing about The Body Shop.

So now my beauty favourites are done, time to talk about the miscellaneous favourites of the month!

Favourite TV Show – Daria.

Daria has been around for years and whilst I have always known about it, I’d never actually watched it until recently. At the start of May I was really poorly with a stomach bug and for nearly a week was bedridden due to it. So whilst I had to stay in bed I decided to binge watch all of season one and half of season two. I never realised how good it was to be honest as well as Β how much I can relate to both Daria and Jane! I love them both so much, I want two besties just like them. πŸ˜› Even though me and my best friend Gabriella are probably like them anyway! xD I really need to continue watching it really and when I have my week off in a few weeks time I think I’ll binge watch it from the start with Dane, as I discovered he likes the show too. πŸ˜€

Favourite Film – Popstar: Never Stop Stopping.

This film isn’t new, in fact it’s been out for a year now and it’s one me and Dane have watched a couple of times now. It’s hilarious to be honest! If you love The Lonely Island then you will love this film as it’s the same guys behind the band. It’s basically a piss take at Justin Bieber, as well as other pop bands and artists out there. The songs (as usual by The Lonely Island) are catchy and funny as fuck! There’s also loads of celebrity appearances including Justin Timberlake as a Japanese sushi chef, who is absolutely hilarious! If you haven’t watched this film yet then I recommend it.

Favourite Book – Bridget Jones’s About The Boy.

This is a book I bought back in 2015 after I returned from my holiday in Fuerteventura with my dad. I had read The Edge of Reason and fell in love with Bridget all over again. SO of course I had to pick up the third book! I haven’t read loads (I hardly get time to read books… Manga I appear to. :P) but oh my God it is lovely to read about Bridget again! I was inspired to pick it up after watching the third movie Bridget Jones’s Baby. Sorry ladies (and gents) of the world who love that film but I thought it was so tacky and just awful. It was so obvious all the way through who the dad would be and it just lacked anything that Bridget would do in my mind. Well most of the time anyway. She would complain constantly about how she’s going to be a crap mom, how she can’t smoke, how she can’t drink, how she’s gaining weight. I don’t recall any of that happening. I’ve also ordered the fourth book too, which is Helen Fielding’s take on it, which already sounds much better than the film!

Favourite Song – RuPaul “Jealous Of My Boogie” and “Glamazon”.

Β I’m not going to lie, I’ve never been a massive fan of the songs from RuPaul… I especially don’t like how he uses the show to advertise his new single… Sorry but yeah. This being said there has always been two songs that stand out to me, which are Jealous Of My Boogie (which I’ve added above) and Glamazon. I just love how catchy and upbeat both songs are. I find myself playing them in the bathroom whilst cleaning! I love the one I’ve linked about the most. I need to download some music very soon and these two will definitely be downloaded straight away.

Favourite Game – Persona 5.

No word of a lie, I haven’t enjoyed a game this much since I discovered Pokemon and Animal Crossing, which are two of my favourite game series. OH and South Park of course! πŸ˜› I haven’t been playing this nonstop due to being an adult, but if I could I totally would! I play it a couple of nights a week after work and I can’t wait until I play it next. I mean after I’ve typed up this blog post (and probably another) I might go downstairs and play it (although it’s 7.30pm now… I may be too late to go down and play. Sad face.) but we shall see!

I don’t know how to explain what the game is about and to be honest I want to review the game itself so I don’t want to go into too much detail! It’s like Pokemon to be honest but darker. πŸ˜›

Yeahhhh so those were my favourites for May! I can’t believe we are officially halfway through the year now. 2017 is going way too quickly and whilst I’m glad (kinda…) I’m also feeling like my life is flashing before my eyes and I’m not doing anything with it, which sucks. It’ll get better though…

What were your favourites from May? Make sure to let me know in the comments down below!

Until next time take care all!
